If Ubuntu packages a newer wpa_supplicant, then there will be an easier
way.  But I don't think they will change the version of wpa_supplicant
in an update for a released distribution.

You missed the real error in the output.

There are several README files in the sources.  Only the top-level
README contains the word "subdirectory", but it says nothing about
making a subdirectory.  Search for "directory" brings more results, but
again, I don't see any text about making a directory.

You don't give enough details for others to retrace your steps and
reproduce your problem or to see what you are doing wrong.
